A Fire in My Heart

“You cannot kindle a fire in any other heart until it is burning within your own.”

This is why I pray for passion to do what I do. I never want to do life on my own strength and enthusiasm. That’s simply boring… and insulting to God and His big plan of spreading hope to the world.

May it be God at work and flowing in me and not my mere humanity. No one wants to see a side show trick but longs to see the glory of God whether or not one knows it. We long for something more! We long for our Creator.

May you and I bring others to know Him and His amazing grace, mercy and love… and not merely be a cool friend to others.

Share His love. Ours only goes so far.

Passion?

Enthusiasm means: “God in you”.

“Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson.

I once asked God for passion for a task. Funny thing is that is one of the compliments I get – about most frequently is regarding my passion. Do you lack passion? Why not ask God for it. If enthusiasm means God is in you, it only makes sense.

Got a passionless marriage? Ask God to be in it. Got a passionless job? Ask God to be in it.

Tell me what happens.
